Bentley Systems, Inc. announced the release of eB Insight, the foundation of Bentley’s AssetWise platform. First introduced a year ago at the 2010 ARC World Industry Forum, AssetWise provides operations information modeling that increases the return on investment for owner-operators of infrastructure assets. Bentley’s new eB Insight features powerful asset lifecycle information management (ALIM) capabilities to manage change and to control information throughout the life span of infrastructure, reportedly ensuring the delivery of relevant, trusted information, in context, to operations, where and when it is needed. Uniquely integrating configuration and change management best practices with advanced information modeling, the new release is said to enable owner-operators to:

  • further reduce the cost of operations,
  • improve decision making,
  • more efficiently meet regulatory and compliance requirements,
  • reduce business risk,
  • increase safety and performance.

eB software, which Bentley added to its portfolio through its acquisition of Enterprise Informatics in February 2010, is reportedly a leading mainstay in nuclear operations – a heavily regulated industry – where it is deployed in power generation units, fuel processing, waste management, and research. Among other sectors globally taking advantage of eB software are energy companies, rail, government, and construction, according to Bentley. Representative users of eB are said to include Constellation Energy, Ameren Corporation, Nuclear Fuel Services, Crossrail, Rolls-Royce, City of Las Vegas, Colorado Springs Utilities, CH2M HILL, Aker Solutions, South African Airways, De Beers, and Network Rail.

Sid Snitkin, vice president and general manager of enterprise advisory services, ARC Advisory Group, said, "Asset Lifecycle Information Management software that can address both operational optimization of asset performance and engineering content from modifications and upgrades to existing assets. This puts Bentley in the singular position of being able to improve infrastructure asset operations across the entire lifecycle – delivering Project Information Management through Bentley’s ProjectWise and Asset Information Management for engineering and operations content through AssetWise."
